Ken Watanabe Joins Nolan's Inception, Brings Plot Details

A little bit of light has been shed on Christopher Nolan's mysterious scifi flick Inception with the casting of Hollywood's favorite samurai, Ken Watanabe.

Inception is filling up with some seriously exciting actors. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Leonardo DiCaprio, and now Ken Watanabe? I'm thinking this flick is going to have a lot of highly emotional stare downs.

But bigger than that is Watanabe's character description

Watanabe will play the film's villain, a man who is blackmailing DiCaprio.

So now we know that there will be a physical bad guy, not just an evil robot or computer, since there are literally limitless possibilities to a film about, "the architecture of the mind." Plus, blackmail is always fun. Will there be naked pictures of Leo? I'm assuming there will be naked pictures.

Also joining the film is Tom Hardy, (the villain from Star Trek: Nemesis) who is no slouch on the creepy stare downs as well. Hardy will be acting as a member of DiCaprio's team.
